August 2017. The global polyethylene (PE) industry can be characterized mainly by a wave of capacity additions in North America, the Middle East, and China (primarily coal based). The shift toward lighter and cost-advantaged feedstock in North America is incentivizing production in the region. The competition in the international market has increased, adding pressure to the high-cost producers, especially in Western Europe. With the dip in oil prices in late 2014, the cost advantages enjoyed by natural gas–based producers declined but were not totally eliminated. Thus, North American capacity and production increases in the coming years will result in increased exports from the region. China is expected to benefit from local production, although its rapid demand growth will continue to depend on imported low-density polyethylene (LDPE) resins. LDPE accounted for 23% of total polyethylene demand in 2016 (LDPE and LLDPE together account for 55% of total polyethylene demand).
